  2. I think it would be easier to say what isn't in that bucket.

  5. Get off my site!

    Ooh. Sorry. Thought I was a liberal there for a second. My apologies.

  6. Gee, I hope you weren't talking to me. That was scary.

    I just wet my pants a little.

    You're lucky. I don't have pants.

  8. That begs the question: Are sharks attracted to urine, or just blood? Can they smell urine? If someone loses their bladder in their swim trunks, is that like sauce?

  9. We are most tempted by the sweet smell of your bodily fluids. They smell tasty. Seals pee when they are scared, and we dig that. Yum!

  10. I've never smelled seal pee, but I've smelled weasel pee. Is that close?

  11. I've never smelled seal pee, but I've smelled weasel pee. Is that close?

    Certainly. Weasels tend to pee all over. They can't control it.

    As an aside, a little trivia: Back in the days of Ancient Greece and Rome, tonics were made from goose semen, weasel urine, and sow's dung to ease a woman's pain during labor.

  12. Certainly. Weasels tend to pee all over. They can't control it.

    Sort of like the way a dog marks. Just everywhere. Just endless. Just can't leave anything without their mark all over it.

    Like that?

  13. Like that?

    Yup. Weasels are right up there with Remoras, Crabpots, Chief Brody, and dolphins.

  14. Warming waters may make Antarctica hospitable to sharks

    Awesome. I think global warming is a bunch of bunk, but I wish it was true, because I hear that penguins taste like chicken.

  15. How does one collect goose semen?

    Same way you collect Shark Semen.

  17. Oh, BAH!

    (However, I will give him points for not saying "Very carefully.")

  18. That reminds me to tell a joke though. (I love musician jokes.)

    Q. What's the difference between a U.S. Savings Bond and a musician?

    A. A U.S. Savings Bond eventually matures and makes money.

  19. Nobody laughed. Okay, I'll try another one.

    Q. What do you throw to a drowning bass player?

    A. His amp.

  20. Q. What does a drum solo and premature ejaculation have in common?

    A. You know it's coming and there is nothing you can do about it.

  21. A young couple, on the brink of divorce, visits a marriage counsellor. The counsellor asks the wife, "What's the problem?" She responds, "My husband suffers from premature ejaculation." The counsellor turns to her husband and inquires, "Is that true?" The husband replies, "Well not exactly, she's the one that suffers, not me."

  22. snoutpalm: Let's not give up our day jobs, mmk?

    But I don't have a day job.

  23. But I don't have a day job.


    I will hire you, and then you can quit, just so you can tell Sharon, "Oops. Too late..."

    ReplyDelete
  24. Okay, quick! Before she comes back!

    Wait...what are the hours? /nigeltufnel

  25. Did I miss anything?

    (What's nigeltufnel?)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Nigel Tufnel is one of the guitar players in the band Spinal Tap, featured in the film This is Spinal Tap.

    He is played by Christopher Guest (who is married to Jamie Lee Curtis).

    At the end of the movie, he is talking hypothetically to an interviewer about what sort of job he might like to have if he wasn't playing music anymore, and when asked about a specific type of job (selling shoes or something), he says, "I don't know...what are the hours?"

    Here is the Wiki, and here is a picture - I believe you'll recognize him. : )

    ReplyDelete
  27. He wanted to work in a Haberdashery.

    ReplyDelete
  28. P.S. No, you didn't miss anything.

    *wink*

  29. Unreal. Who are these people?

    I'm guessing it's people who are not old enough to remember America when Carter was president.

    ReplyDelete
  30. "Who are these people?"

    My guess would be they're in the 'acadamia nut' category.
